Lean Mean Leafy-Green Shake

You’ve seen the neighborhood hipsters brandish the infamous green shake at your local juice bars. We cut through all the hype, pomp, and mystery with our Lean Mean Leafy-Green Shake. Much of this green shake’s power is due to its simplicity. Our leafy green shake includes four nourishing ingredients—a modest bill of fare, but each eatable is loaded with a cornucopia of healthy constituents, including minerals, beneficial fiber, and antioxidants. Vitamin K, calcium, omega-3 fatty acids…need we go on?

Of all the green ingredients—green apples, spinach, cilantro, and romaine lettuce—spinach delivers the meanest green. Spinach, as with most leafy-green vegetables, contains rich sources of dietary chlorophyll, which is a plant pigment crucial to plant photosynthesis because it traps, then converts, sunlight energy into chemical energy and other organic compounds that fuel the plant’s life processes. Now, imagine what chlorophyll can do for you? Consumed regularly, chlorophyll can help prevent major chronic illnesses, or it can help reverse certain illness complications. Need proof? Start sipping our ultra green lean shake and see for yourself!
